Basic Suspension Seminar??

Just gauging interest; How many of you would be interested in a basic suspension seminar?

Topics would include: Chassis rake and trail, ride height and it's effects, spring rates, setting proper sag, discussion of compression and rebound circuits, tuning guide, etc.

I'm working on the curriculum, but it would be 3 - 4 hours long and yes there would be a course fee. I'm thinking somewhere around $100.00?

Or a more in-depth class that would be 7-8 hours long and would be a little more.

Please keep replies positive and on topic.

Thanks!

Patrick it just wouldn't be fair to ask you to not only teach us how to setup our suspensions but then to pay us $100 too!
No way Dude! I think we should have to pay you!

Sounds good to me. Anything besides proper preload is a mystery to me-I just keep clicking till it feels good.

I'm interested, but would need to know a date to commit, I'd also be a player for the longer more pricey should it happen.
